RE: air cutting out in middle of night
Thanks for replies to my query on start/stop. "SmartStop" was off so I turned it on. And in another thread or place, I found a suggestion to cycle the power to the machine. I did that yesterday and last night had no cut out of air. I'm hard of hearing and can't hear the air when it is on low but this morning, my wife told me it had not switched off when I got up. Hope the power cycle has cured the air on/off problem and setting smartstop on will switch it off in the morning. I'll find out tonite.

Hi daddyhominum,
WELCOME! to the forum,! and best of luck to you.
Hopefully, your machine will work after you powered it down.

RE: air cutting out in middle of night
It's smart because when you put on your mask and start breathing, the machine will start. I disconnected mine.

I was having problems with my machine pressure constantly going down to a bearly exsistant blowing. I tried everything including replacments. Finally Supplier #2 took them back and refunded my money because I had purched it during a time of no health insurance.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU,
Kate

Thank you for all the suggestions. The machine did the start/stop again this morning so I have tried all the suggestions. IU can't really afford a new machine, so I may have to make do with this problem.
